bluejeansonfire: Stay home, wear a mask, give a damn.


My contacts since March 16th, 2020

Grocery Store, 8 times
Liquor Store, 6 times
Building maintenance guy, once (small water leak.)
Butcher, 3 times (and that was "call and they bring your order out to the car.")

I think that's it. I've set a rule that I don't drink if I'm working the next day simply to keep the booze consumption levels somewhere around "too much" and not "omgwtf." Having done so, I'm still saving a bunch of money because...well...can't spend it anywhere. 

Movies, sports, and haircuts can wait, godammit.

Sports: I should be going to a baseball game this evening, but obviously, that's not happening. Sigh, but it is what it is. Wouldn't go if I could.

Hair. I grabbed my beard trimmer, and said "Hair. One of us isn't leaving alive. Draw!"  Hair hasn't been this short in over...shiat, 30 years. I'm keeping it, at least in summer.

Does it look good? Who the fark cares, I'm not seeing anybody face to face! Actually, it doesn't look too bad. I'm sure the back is ragged, but fark it, can't see it, not a problem.

Movies. I don't watch movies in theaters anyway, because the image sucks, the sound sucks, and all the people with glowing rectangles suck enough to cause noticeable curvature in space-time.

I am going to have to stock up in the next couple of days. Getting low on food, and will need a long weekend's worth of tasty tasty beer. STFU liver you're not done yet.

Bennie Crabtree: Fauci just said the US is fast approaching 100k new infections a day. And this guy has to go get supplies.


You're right. Doubling the beer order.

yakmans_dad: Yesterday, I had to take some documents to be mailed to the post office. It was ... insane. The clerks were wearing their masks pulled down below their nostrils. All of them. There were maybe 12 customers who were mostly wearing masks. The exception: the guy right in front of me. He looked like that guy who played the toady in the Rachel Weiss Mummy. And he just wasn't not wearing a mask. He was closer than normal to the guy in front of him. TV dialog close. Well, well. So, I stayed  well back. Just insane. He exhibited the attitude, "If I got it, so will you."

I'm in the 1-5 mortality cohort so maybe I'm overly cautious. But I don't think so. I don't want to die and I really don't want to survive and live like a walking invalid.


Apologies for the weird writing in my previous post.

"I had to go to the post office to mail some documents."
"All of the clerks wore their masks pull down below their nostrils."

Maybe I'm feeling the first encroaches of the COVID.

Sure, it sounded like a boring blog post, read out loud. But think of it as the writer is keeping a journal and this is the opening credits of the first episode of a zombie movie. Now re-read the last line there. Fauci just said the US is fast approaching 100k new infections a day. And this guy has to go get supplies.

This long weekend of beer parties is gonna be when the show hits its stride. Time to make some popcorn!
